Dd carved a smiley face in the wooden table with a plastic tooth pick. Is there anything that can be used to take it out.

You could probably try some wood puddy and stain over it.  Why not just leave it?  It could become one of those funny "you did this when you were little" stories.

I don't know, but it reminds me of what I did after I learned how to write my name. I wrote it in pen on my headboard. That bed had been my grandparents, and DH and I are using that same bed frame now, and my name is still in it.

It's my moms table, she's pretty pissed. Haven't even had the table for a month.

Got ya. 

Sand it down and if the marks are still there, put some wood puddy on them. Sand that down after it dries and then re-stain.  Should be good as new afterwards.

If it's just scratched, you can try rubbing a walnut on it.  Here's how.

It really depends on the table.
I would think that the only way to get it out would be to buff it out and re-stain or paint it! :-/  Before you do that, though, you could try a trick using your iron. Place a clean damp rag over the carving and lightly press the tip of the iron over the area for several seconds. Dry the wood surface with a clean cloth. Lightly sand the carved area and refinish it to match the wood stain and varnish.
